Schuchard Students Get Cultured
Students at Schuchard learned about different cultures during their cultural celebration.

Hello Graebner Families,


We are looking forward to next week and seeing all of our Graebner Dolphins back in school for another school year of learning, friends and fun!


There have been changes in the building as all classrooms now have lockable doors! All classrooms were equipped with additional locking devices in case of an emergency as well. We are welcoming several new staff members to our building and so glad to have them!


All grade level supply lists are on our website.


If students are buying breakfast, they may enter Door 2 beginning at 8:20. We will offer breakfast for those students buying breakfast on the first day.


We are looking forward to a great school year, and we are excited to see you soon!


Warm regards,


Mrs. Wood
